To determine how given equilibrium quantities will be affected by the initial amount of X(g) placed in the container at constant temperature.
Reaction: 2X(g) ⇌ Y(g) + Z(s)
According to Le Chatelier’s Principle, if a system (chemical reaction) is at equilibrium and we disturb it, then the system will readjust to maintain its equilibrium state.
Changes in reactant concentration:
A generic gas, X, is placed in a sealed glass jar and decomposes to from gaseous Y and solid Z.
2X(g) ⇌ Y(g) + Z(s)
How are these equilibrium quantities affected by the initial amount of X(g) placed in the container? Assume constant temperature.
mass of Z at equilibrium
[Y] at equilibrium
[Y]/[X] at equilibrium
[X] at equilibrium
[X]2/[Y] at equilibrium
